6 Reasons Your Blog Content Won’t Go Viral

6 Reasons Your Blog Content Won’t Go Viral | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Here are 6 reasons your content won’t get shared (and it absolutely won’t go viral):


1) No Sharing Buttons (or they’re hidden)

In order to help your content spread, you have to reduce the friction of sharing. In other words, make it very easy to share via Facebook, LinkedIn Twitter, Pinterest and via email.


2) You Have a Boring Headline

Headlines are the first things people see when the visit your website or blog.


3) You’re Not Connected In Social Media and/or You Don’t Share it Yourself

If a tree falls in the forest but no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Translated into blogging, this is, “If a post is written but there’s no one around to read or share it, was it really written at all?”.


4) Your Posts Are All About You

I have nothing against you, your company, your products, the benefits of your products, the different colors you offer, your financing plans, your client case studies, your demos or your company events. It’s just that it’s not that interesting for me as a reader.


5) You Don’t Have an Artisanal Attitude to Crafting Content

Blog posts that are produced as “check the box” activities will never be exceptional. In other words, an inspired piece of content can get hundreds or thousands of shares while an uninspired one can get zero.


6) You Don’t Post Often Enough To Become Good At It

Every content creator starts off producing average (or below average) content. Get over that fact.

You have to produce enough content, get enough feedback, see what people respond to and find your own voice…and that requires that you put in some time.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 18, 2014 9:53 AM

Mary makes great points about social benefits of blogging. I loved her idea about putting Facebook likes in the middle of a post since it breaks up the text and is an attention getter. Blogging is the bicycle riding of our content marketing times.

Had someone tell me in a meeting the other day they couldn't write due to a learning disability. Suggested they video blog or use Tumblr instead. We are moving to a more visual time anyway so there are always ways to support your content with blogging even if you can't write.

This article is reason and motivation to keep on blogging. I especially like the idea of blogging as a way to thank my followers and increase engagement on other social media platforms like Twitter.

How Blogging Has Helped My Social Results

From the article...I often get asked how to get more likes on Facebook. While the fastest way to get more fans is to use Facebook advertising (yup I said it) my best results have come from blogging. When I see a spike in my numbers on Facebook, it is almost always right after a blog post I wrote has gotten a lot of exposure.
